Standing Meeting

YOUR INTERVIEW

Congratulations! We look forward to having you as a guest on the podcast!

Thank you for agreeing to be a guest on the Women Express! Podcast! 

Here are some things that you should know to help you to better prepare for your interview spot:

Once you sign up for your interview with the link provided, you will be prompted to include the following items, if you have not done so already:

  1. Your Bio that will be used to introduce you and to provide background information​​

  2. A high-resolution .jpg photo of you that can be cropped to the dimensions of 560px x 350px to be displayed on your post at Womenexpresspodcast.com.

  3. 5 points you would like to cover during the session.

A few tips to help you better prepare for the big day

  1. Sound quality:

    • Sound quality is important on the podcast, so if you have a nice microphone and headset please have it set up for your interview time. If not, earbuds are the next best thing.

  2. Internet connection:

    • Internet connection will affect the quality of your interview. The best Zoom quality comes from a wired internet connection (via ethernet). However, wifi will work as well. If you have a choice, go with the wired connection.

  3. Background/Setting:

    • Your Zoom setting should be a well-lit area with face directing light along with a neutral background. If this is not possible, you can opt for a filter.

  4. Framing:

    • Try to center your face in the video frame and to keep less than a meter distance between you and the camera. The frame should include your torso and your full face with some room above your head. 

  5. Distractions:

    • You’ll want to remove any distractions and turn off your cell phone ringer during the recording time and make sure that there are no fans or loud machinery in your space.

What will you be asked?

The interviews are very “organic” and no two interviews are the same. That said, I open the interview by reading your bio and sharing your episode topic as an introduction. 

As for in between the episode introduction and the end of the interview, there is no predefined set of questions. Here is a list of the types of questions I have asked guests to give you an idea of the kinds of questions to expect:

  • What is the business that you are in?

  • Tell us about your journey that led you into the work that you do today.

  • What business practices do you have that support your lifestyle, self, and business?

  • What was the defining moment that led you to the path that you are on?

  • Where can people go to learn more about you? How do people get in touch with you? Where do people go to get more of you and your work?

  • If you could share one message with the world, what would it be?

Just plan to be yourself and share from your heart and Denise will pull the best out of you for a great interview. Also, we are not live, so we have some flexibility to edit if necessary.

I will contact you via Zoom (audio only for podcast episodes unless a recorded session has been agreed upon beforehand).

I am looking forward to speaking with you soon! Please contact denise@speakingwithimpact.com for any questions or concerns. 

Until then,
Denise
